58 returning travellers test Covid-19 positive in Qatar on Nov 15

58 returning travellers test Covid-19 positive in Qatar on Nov 15”

These conclusions differ from an earlier study suggesting that the test gives no false positive results.

A man in England admitted to The Lancashire Telegraph that he doctored his friend's test results and used it to travel internationally.

The study suggests that if 10% of people given the test had previously been infected, approximately 1 in 5 positive test results would be incorrect, showing false positive results.

Hawaii, which requires negative COVID-19 test results for entry since October 15, mandates that visitors register online before travel and upload their results from a lab within 72 hours of traveling. A further 1995 pre-pandemic blood samples were also tested as "known negatives". "Left nostril positive & right nostril negative" the comments from the results read.

They suggest this difference is probably due to the test being more sensitive when antibody levels are higher.

The researchers note a number of limitations to their study such as the fact that the test was evaluated in a laboratory rather than having participants perform the test themselves - which may have overestimated performance. In some settings an antigen test will need to be confirmed with a more accurate and definitive molecular/PCR test.

Erykah Badu is understandably confused after somehow testing both positive and negative for COVID-19 this week.

The Antigen Rapid Test works by detecting the presence of viral proteins (antigens) in the respiratory tract. Antigen tests are also now included in Total Tests, which are similarly broken down so one can see which are antigen tests and which are PCR tests.

Overall, about one in five positive results would be wrong, they suggest.
